London, January 8 (ANI): Football ace David Beckham and his Spice Girl wife Victoria gifted their eldest son, Brooklyn, a hi-tech iPhone this Christmas.

The eight-year-old boy had requested his parents to buy him the mobile last year, after hype in the US reached fever pitch.

The 269-pound device will enable Brooklyn to surf the net, ring his pals, and listen to his mothers albums.

David and Victoria are aware that Brooklyn is very young to have a mobile. But they thought it would be a good idea so he could call them whenever he needed - especially with David and Victoria globe-trotting so much, the Sun quoted a source as saying.

Brooklyn is really switched on with computers and gadgets. He set his heart on the iPhone when he saw it on TV in America. He loves computer games and is always on his PSP handheld console, the source added.

The Beckhams, according to reports, decided in favour of giving Brooklyn the iPhone with a view to staying in touch with him during their hectic schedules.

However, child experts believe that David and Victorias gift may spoil their child.

An eight-year-old can have no possible use for an iPhone - its irrelevant to his life, said child expert Dreena Hamilton, of Channel 4 show Bringing Up Baby. (ANI)
